Arsenal’s FPL defenders offering greater value than attackers this season

Man United 0-1 Arsenal

  • Goals: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.7m)
  • Assists: Hector Bellerin (£5.0m)
  • Bonus Points: Bellerin x3, Gabriel x2 (£5.1m), Aubameyang x1

A penalty from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.7m) was enough for Arsenal to win a dour match at Manchester United that even a mythical football purist would have struggled to enjoy.

The Gabon international’s spot-kick, earned when Paul Pogba (£7.8m) fouled Hector Bellerín (£5.0m), handed the Gunners their first league win at Old Trafford in 14 years.

It also extended United’s winless run at home to four league games this season in a match that was heavy on the footballing history but light on pretty much everything else.

Gunner Be Tighter

It is a mark of this topsy-turvy season that Liverpool (15) have conceded the most goals and Arsenal (seven) the least.

Under Mikel Arteta, the Gunners are clearly much harder to beat. They are also much harder to love, especially in Fantasy terms.

Despite that impressive defensive stat, Sunday’s win was only their second clean sheet of the campaign, making it tricky for Fantasy Premier League managers to rely on a backline that’s clearly solid, just not solid enough.

But when they do shut down the opposition, the bonus point credentials of centre-half Gabriel (£5.1m) shine very brightly indeed. He earned his 11.4% ownership two extra points on Sunday.

All this defensive goodness has come during a tough opening run for the Gunners – they’ve faced Liverpool, both Manchester clubs and Leicester over the last five Gameweeks.

If they can kick on as their schedule eases, the returning Rob Holding (£4.4m) looks a potential bargain if he stays fit and in favour.

Arteta has already switched between a four and a five at the back this campaign, heightening the appeal of the team’s centre-halves.

Boring, Boring Arsenal

It is much harder to big up Arsenal’s attacking assets though.

Aubameyang is a great case in point. Boosted by his newly-acquired FPL status as a midfielder, he was owned by three million managers at the start of the season.

Six games, one goal and an assist later, his eight-point return at Old Trafford – his best score this campaign – was enjoyed by just over a million Fantasy bosses.

At least Aubameyang had something to show for his work, thanks to his penalty-taking responsibilities. 

Lone striker Alexandre Lacazette (£8.4m) had a miserable afternoon involving one penalty area touch and no shots, although he did lead the way – alongside Luke Shaw (£4.9m) – for chances created, with two.

With Aston Villa and Leeds up next for the Gunners, the prospect of goals looks good. But who’s going to score them?

United We Stand (Down)

As for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, the return of Anthony Martial (£8.7m) from suspension probably cannot come soon enough.

Since he was dismissed against Spurs, United have fallen apart in that Tottenham debacle, left it very late to beat Newcastle and have now emerged goalless and with one point from home games against Chelsea and Arsenal.

The United coach started with a diamond formation on Sunday, with Mason Greenwood (£7.2m) nominally playing up front alongside Marcus Rashford (£9.6m).

It was a move that Arteta referenced post-match.

“They played a really tricky formation with four midfielders and two that constantly strain your back four.” – Mikel Arteta

Whereas Solskjaer was rather less enthused by his own master plan.

“The formation is down to the opposition. It depends on the team you play against and how you execute that shape yourself. Of course, today we were too sloppy, too many passes went astray and the rotations weren’t there. Too many things can go wrong in a game of football that maybe went wrong for us.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Greenwood did at least work Bernd Leno (£5.0m) – one of three (regulation) saves for the Arsenal keeper.

But it was a mark of United’s toothlessness that Rashford had just three touches, and no shots, in the box.

In fact, the team’s major offensive weapon ended up being Harry Maguire (£5.4m), whose aerial threat led to a match-leading four attempts and five touches in the penalty area as United hoped for the best from a series of corners and crosses.

The best never came and the hope is currently drifting away.

United now have a mixed bag (eve WBA sou whu) to find some of both before Gameweek 12’s Manchester derby.

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred (Matic 62); Pogba, Fernandes (van de Beek 75), Greenwood (Cavani 75); Rashford. 

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Elneny, Partey; Saka, Willian (Maitland-Niles 86), Aubameyang (Mustafi 87); Lacazette (Nketiah 76).

    Got Barkley.

    1) Zaha
    2) Grealish

        Grealish and remove Barkley for someone else

        4 months, 1 day ago

        Grealish is a must have for me, considering his form and fixtures. Zaha is a pretty good pick too. But out of the two, I'd rather have Grealish.

      First time this year looking for advice. Used 2FTs to do JRod, Maupay > Puli, Bamford and now I’m stuck.

      Martinez
      Reguilón Robertson Ayling/KWP
      Salah Son Grealish Pulisic*
      DCL Kane Bamford

      Forster McGinn* Mitchell

      1FT 0.1itb

      The questions are:
      1. Should I be taking any hits?
      2. Pulisic > ?
      3. Shipping McGinn a priority?
      4. Defense ok?

      Thanks all

        Just do Pulisic out, everything else can wait.

      Saiss & Mitchell > Bellerin & Coufal

      Exact funds. 2FT.

      Only issue is I have no Chelsea defenders.

      My defenders:

      Robbo
      Saiss
      Lamptey
      Justin
      Mitchell

      1. JURGENAUT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 1 day ago

        Any opinions please?

      2. shiraz
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Can't accomodate everyone, and chelsea defence cost 5.0 and above. You would do well using the extra fund on strengthening your mid and forward

        • Mile Plankton
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          My defence is same except that I have Reece James instead of Robbo.
          Can't you do Saiss->Zouma

          Mitchell can stay there as a bench fodder. Other four should be enough.

          Also, Mendy could be good Chelsea asset.

          1. JURGENAUT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            4 months, 1 day ago

            I can do a straight swap of Saiss to Zouma.

            However, Mitchell will fall tomorrow and I’ll only be able to sell at 4.0 for which there’s no replacements.

            Right now I can sell Saiss & Mitchell for 9.3 combined with 0.2 itb giving me 9.5 for 2 defenders.

            On the balance of things, I feel Bellerin & Coufal would be reasonable.

            Just don’t know if I’m walking into a disaster with no Chelsea coverage.

            Goalie is McCarthy and I’m happy with him.

            1. tafrère

              4 months, 1 day ago

              You bought Mitchell when he was £4.0 or £4.1 ?

              1. tafrère
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                4 months, 1 day ago

                If Mitchell falls, he will fall from £4.2 to £4.1. So, in either case, you'll be able to sell him for £4.1.

                1. JURGENAUT
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  4 months, 1 day ago

                  & I cannot do the Mitchell upgrade without transferring out Saiss first which isn’t idea as I wanted to wait a little bit with him, but Bellerin escaped a price rise tonight and I’m sure tomorrow he’ll definitely rise. So will have to pull the trigger soon

                  1. tafrère
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    4 months, 1 day ago

                    Bellerin is a good pick, didn't see ealier that he was so "cheap". With the fixtures coming for Arsenal and his offensive style, it's a decent pick. I wouldn't rush a transfer early in the week to get him though.

              2. JURGENAUT
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                4 months, 1 day ago

                Bought at 4.0. He’s 4.2 right now but should he fall to 4.1 which he will, can only sell for 4.0 right?

                1. tafrère
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  4 months, 1 day ago

                  I can't remember how it works now I think of it... Maybe you're right. Gonna check the rules lmao.

        • tafrère
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 1 day ago

          Saiss > Bellerin/Coufal looks fine.

          1. Third Eye Vision
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 1 day ago

            I’d keep Mitchell as fodder for now. Still a chance that he will play. Saiss to Bellerin seems a decent option, although I’d prefer Zouma, especially with no other Chelsea def.

            If you need the funds then Coufal is an option, although I’m not convinced about West Ham’s CS potential.

            Roll the other FT for now.

        Got both Mane and Salah. Need to get rid of Mane I suppose or keep against City anyway?

        1. Vazza
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Keep Mane imo

          • Niho992

            Mane away > Salag

            1. Niho992
              • 2 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              H

          • BERGKOP
            • 9 Years

            I'd keep Mane. Stats have been insane.

        2. Futureform
            4 months, 1 day ago

            Kilman transfer dilemma.

            Q1) Is he nailed for the forseeable?
            Q2) Is it a good idea when his next fixtures are LEI, SOU, ARS, LIV, AVL, CHE, BUR, TOT, MUN?

            1. JURGENAUT
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              4 months, 1 day ago

              I don’t think he is nailed.

              He’s 4.3 now, I’d invest in West Ham for 4.5.

            2. Mile Plankton
              • 8 Years
              4 months, 1 day ago

              Kilman at 4.0 was a good idea.
              Kilman at 4.3 with that schedule can only go down imo.

            3. Futureform
                4 months, 1 day ago

                Thanks both. Didn't realise he'd already gone to 4.3. Maybe not worth it at that price.

                1. Vazza
                    4 months, 1 day ago

                    Definitely not worth it. You may as well go for Jamal Lewis at 4.4m

                    1. Futureform
                        4 months, 1 day ago

                        Yes, fixtures look much better for him - good shout.

                2. Mile Plankton
                  • 8 Years
                  4 months, 1 day ago

                  Will Saiss drop in price before Friday?

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    4 months, 1 day ago

                    Possibly

                      4 months, 1 day ago

                      That is my concern, will be keeping an eyes on him with fpl stats. But fpl stats can be inaccurate, maupay's price fall without any warning

                      4 months, 1 day ago

                      Possibly not what's the hurry? He's at 15%. Good luck

                        I am not sure how accurate it is.

                    Ings, Jimenez, Davis

                    Leaning toward TAA, Ings > Zouma, Kane.

                    But, anything worth a hit?

                          He hasn't been ruled out yet. If he's fit he's a definite keep.

                              If he is out injured Coufal does look like a good replacement.

                    Do you think having Son+Kane still necessary on WC? Or just get one of them?

                      Just get 1 of them. They both have a similar output so its about what you do with the extra cash

                      Probably only one in that run of fixtures. Kane imo.

                      Keeping Kane while Vardy visits Fulham will be tough

                      But, MCI is no longer a great defensive team.

                        This is just wrong... the Dias-Laporte partnership has looked very good so far.

                          Pfff!

                          SHU would have mauled them for 3 with a tad more quality

                          Possession by their Mids is their best defense, on their own, they are toast

                          Bayern is going to hang 5 on them if MCI makes it that far in the UCL

                              Relax child, if MCI is year team I could not care less.

                              Get all your heros on your team and wear their shirt as you root for them.

                    Can I save FT with this team?

                    Martinez//Hendrick/Saiss/Mitchell
                    3.1 ITB, 1 FT

                    Do you think I'll have 3 playing defenders?
                    Do I need to sell Saiss or I can wait.

                      also id wait until after wk 9 (southampton) to look to offload saiss, thats my plan at least

                        That's what I was thinking, kepp until gw9. But he is uncertain to play and Soton are scoring regularly.

                        And for other 4
                        James is rotation risk;
                        Lamp is injury risk;
                        Mitchell is behind PVA in packing order;
                        Justin is also second option, but he is safe for now.

                        I could use a nailed on defender.

                    I know a lot can happen between now and then but I’m thinking of WC gwk10 to load up on City Utd Leicester assets who have great fixtures and offload Spurs Wolves Brighton etc. Curious to see those with WC if they have a target date to play it— international break maybe? Double Gameweeks probably will come after WC deadline...

                      I think Leicester is being overhyped... they have 2 good fixtures (Fulham, Brighton) from gw10 to 16.

                      I prefer a gw9 WC as there are more teams that have a fixture flip, also the IB

                        I agree, also I think United's fixture turn is overhyped, their team is a shambles at the mo. When I look at the fixtures from GW9 I see WBA and the rest are ...meh. When their DGW comes around I can't see myself getting anyone but Fernandes at the mo. Prioritize City.

                        Could be the next big value pick.

                    Bamford or Wilson..

                      See I had Wilson for weeks and did Wilson to Bamford before this GW. Wilson gets brace. I dunno. I still back it as value for dollar but this tough call.

                      1. Sz21

                        Bamford will probably get more chances so its just a case of if he can covert enough of them.
                        Wilson on pens is appealing too though.

                      • 8 Years
                      4 months, 1 day ago

                      Is Bamford on pens?
                      I don't like either with tough fixtures comming up. But Wilson is probably better choice between two of them going forward.

                        4 months, 1 day ago

                        No pens for Bamford.

                          klich takes pens for leeds. also, i feel wilson is a better pick until gw13 when leeds fixtures turn to easier ones.

                        GK: Martinez, Forster
                        DEF: Saiss, Coufal, Cancelo, Chilwell, Mitchell

                        0.7 ITB

                          Jorginho and saiss , cancelo need to go

                          Saiss surely needs to go?
                          I'd go Kilman or Holding if you are feeling a little punty.

                          personally despite playign west brom id look for only one of son/kane and save yourself a transfer down the line, their fixtures get bad— prob use the cash to upgrade jorginho to grealish

                          Saiss out for sure. Not a fan of the Jorginho pick. Soucek instead maybe? Prefer Wilson and Watkins to Bamford.

                            I’d go Mandy instead of Martinez. Villa showing signs of weakness at the back. That’s double Chelsea defence, obviously. I’d go Dias over Cancelo for security of starts. Get rid of Saiss to fund those moves.

                        Didn't watch the game, how did Leicester do? Absolute destruction.

                          Leeds inconsistent

                          Leeds were naive at the start of the match, leaving 2 on 2 and with Leicester’s quality on the counter, they punished them early on. It was all Leeds after half-time, Bielsa having tweaked the formation. Leicester were clinical as the game wore on. They’ve got quality off the bench these days. Vardy looking a serious fpl option again. He needs so few chances to rack up the points.

                            Nice, thanks. Seems like I was wrong to discount them before the season, they're doing very well. I thought no Europe would have had a bigger effect! Vardy is playing phenomenally too, wow.

                            1. Third Eye Vision

                              Yeah. His goal record in the league is so impressive. Looking like he’s going to hit those numbers again. Plus, Leicester get plenty of penalties, which is another factor to consider. He hadn’t been off the pitch long when they were awarded another.

                              I was all set on bringing in either Rash or Fernandes, but now considering a front line of Kane, Vardy, DCL.

                                Kane -> Vardy seems like the move I'll make GW10, let's see. It's him or a United asset and I like what I'm seeing from Leicester, the Wolves game will be interesting - I want to see how they deal with a strong defense.

                          Keep your eye on the price changes and look to do this move on Thursday.

                          Maybe Ziyech is the Chelsea option...

                          I would wait for Pulisic injury news. If he is out, then sell.

                        Is Creswell worth 0.6 or 0.7 more than Coufal, Masuaku and Balbuena.
                        Is any of them rotation risk or not nailed on?

                        1. Third Eye Vision

                          4 months, 1 day ago

                          Suggestions that Masuaku’s place would be under threat if they changed formation at the back. I think Coufal would keep his place regardless. Not sure about Balbuena. Think Coufal offers more going forward too, so get him unless the 0.1 is crucial.

                            Thanks.
                            I was thinking exactly that, who could be dropped if they switch to 4 at the back.
                            Creswell is not an attcking threat if he plays as CB, so I'll probably go for Coufal. Hopefully, he'll serve well.

                              I need a Saiss replacement and was thinking Coufal. I’m just mulling over a Saints or Villa defender instead. Maybe Saints have the most CS potential.

                                I am thinking Saiss to Coufal or Vestergaard.
                                Saints could do better, but I want Coufal as a differential, as my rival has Vestergaard. I hope he's done scoring.

                        Vardy looking like a decent Kane replacement from GW10?

                          Reluctant to drop Kane, he’s only blanked in the first game of the season. Incredible consistency so far. but Vardy definitely looking like an option instead of someone else.

                          I like all of them. I’m less sure of KDB at the moment. I guess he’ll be more of an option once Aguero or Jesus get fit.

                          Chilwell over Zouma long term.

                          Son & DCL long term. Both well underpriced this season.
